Beit al-Quran

Beit al-Quran was opened in Manama, Bahrain, in 1990 as a museum and research center. It is a unique project funded primarily from contributions by local people.

The building is a triple combination of mosque, repository of a rare collection of manuscripts and a centre for studies. It houses a unique collection of Quranic and Islamic manuscripts, prints, and wood carvings, some of the artifacts were given to Beit al-Quran from private collections.

The al-Furqan Library holds around 50,000 volumes and is expected to become a major centre for the study of the Quran.
